We participated in kajak rafting, because there was not enough water to do rafting.

The day is long and you get to do many different things. It's interesting and exciting.

Our Skipper took us through idyllic areas to a beautiful island. Many of us couldn't swim, so we hiked around the island whilst learning about its interesting history and having drinks by the coast. The overall experience didn't feel rushed, allowing us to relax and take in the scenery. Later on we had drinks on the water, before jumping for a swim (non-swimmers with lifejackets). Our group agreed that it was the best speed boat trip any of us had been on before and the Sphinx story was a nice touch.
